The New England Society for the Treatment of Trauma and Dissociation presents

We strongly encourage pre-registration for both members and non-members.


In this workshop Dr. Teicher will present pioneering research that he and his group have conducted on the effects of childhood maltreatment on brain development and behavior. His data indicates that there are sensitive periods in which specific brain regions are particularly vulnerable to the effects of childhood sexual abuse. In addition he will present results from imaging studies examining the unique neurobiological consequences of different forms of traumatic experiences such as childhood sexual abuse, parental verbal abuse, witnessing domestic violence, and harsh corporal punishment.  Neurobiological effects that correlate with symptoms of dissociation will be discussed.
